ONE OF MY BOYS

He followed me home
As cats often do
They seem to know
I love them too
I picked him up
Very carefully
And right away
He purred at me
I opened a bag
Of crunchies for him
He was so hungry
What a sin
I wondered
When he had eaten last
And wondered about
His secret past
Was he someone’s cat
Were they searching for him
Wondering where he is
And where he had been
Put in a newspaper ad
“Found a cat orange and white
A real beauty
A real delight
If he belongs to you
Please call a the number below
Leave a message…I’ll call back
And I will be happy to show
This kitty with such a fine disposition
Left in the street
In a hungry condition”
I still can’t fanthom
How anyone could leave
This little kitten
Who fit in my sleeve
On the street
All alone
Scared and worried
On his own
How cruel could someone
Possibly be
To do this to a cat
Couldn’t they see
He formed a bond
And was tossed away
I just hope one day
Someone will pay
So I spoiled him
With all special toys
And he just fits in
And now he’s ONE OF MY BOYS

PLEASE ADOPT A PET
SAVE A LIFE
IF A CAT FOLLOWS YOU HOME
EITHER KEEP HIM IF YOU CAN
OR BRING HIM TO A NO-KILL SHELTER
